Vera for External Use

vera is possibly the most popular and well known herbs in today's
society. It grows as a large, cactus-like plant; in fact, many people
think it actually is a cactus, when in fact it's actually part of
the lili family's succulent "aloes."
people already know that aloe vera is wonderful for pain, particularly
the kind you get from burns. Whether cooking burns or sun burns, aloe
is often used to take away the pain. It's known as a contact healer
because not only does it take away the pain, it stimulates healing
on the affected area as well.
known use of aloe vera is to relieve itching from chicken pox, poison
ivy, and poison oak. And drinking aloe vera juice for several days
may help expel pinworms too.
vera is also wonderful for many kinds of skin problems. Since it helps
remove dead skin and promotes the growth of healthy living cells,
it not only helps wounds and burns heal faster but it can help your
skin improve in general too.
it has such great results for both skin and hair care, it's common
to find aloe vera in many types of beauty and cosmetic products. One
of the reasons aloe vera is so useful as a healing herb is because
it can penetrate all three layers of your skin. This can create wonderful
results when aloe vera is used with other all natural ingredients
that won't harm your body.
aloe vera is often mixed with harmful chemicals, colorings, and additives
that can be harmful to your body. And since the aloe vera penetrates
your skin so well, it helps carry those toxins deeper into your body
is one of the reasons aloe vera suntan lotions tend to sting. These
popular products often contain alcohol and perfumes added to the aloe
vera, so when you apply them to a sunburn, the pain isn't often taken
away as you'd expect. Instead it stings or hurts when it goes on,
then it doesn't really feel any better later. It also doesn't seem
to heal as fast as you'd expect it to.
pure, 100% aloe vera juice or gel almost always relieves the pain
as soon as you put it on, and the healing happens much faster too.
sure to read product labels, and understand what you might be putting
into your body when buying aloe vera products. My recommendation would
be to stick with 100% natural and pure if at all possible. An even
better idea would be growing the plant itself and using the cut leaves
for a balm.
